Development of stress specific  digital phenotyping protocols for multiple crops

Herco van Liere, Keygene NV, Wageningen, NL

In the era of Plant Genomics the amount of DNA information of crops has increased enormously. As a consequence, more effective and reliable phenotyping data has become the bottleneck for modern genetic crop improvement. Therefore Plant Phenotyping has become a major field of research in plant breeding.

In order to meet the challenges of this very new and promising field of research new technologies such as greenhouse automation and plant imaging systems in controlled environments and in the field are needed.

The PhenoDays International Symposium exactly addresses the Phenotyping bottleneck by providing stimulating talks from internationally renowned keynote speakers from the seed industry, breeding institutes and academic breeding groups working in the Plant Phenotyping research area.

This surely is a great opportunity for the researchers from all over the world to meet and exchange their ideas, approaches and results in Plant Phenotyping research.
